Delivering high quality museum learning for schools

Anne delivers practical training on successful provision for schools in museums, galleries and other cultural and heritage organisations. Her courses identify methods to engage school children effectively and support everyone’s learning, and explore ways to increase the benefits, relevance and appeal of museum visits to schools.

Expected learning outcomes include:

  • greater awareness of the benefits of school visits and the barriers
  • more knowledge of school practices, the national curriculum and how to support them
  • more understanding of how children learn
  • inclusive methods for fostering learning, participation and enjoyment
  • effective ways to break down barriers to learning
  • strategies for increasing school take-up of museum offers

This training is fully interactive and includes hands-on elements. There are opportunities throughout to discuss concerns and analyse successful policy and practice.

Anne offers face-to-face and online courses for national, international and regional organisations and bespoke in-house training. She tailors every course to the needs of clients and delegates.

Delegates receive extensive back-up material.

What people say about this training

Brilliantly delivered, inspiring. Hugely grateful for your skills and facilitation.

Interesting, engaging; inspired reflective thought. Anne really helped facilitate stimulating discussion and shared debate. I’ve learnt a lot.

This was great both from the point of view of working here and general museum teaching practice.

Thank you for a great day giving us time to talk about our practice and share ways of doing things better. It was very well facilitated and tied together.

It has made me rethink my approach to education workshops at the museum. There are things I will take away with me to apply to my teaching.

It was such an excellent day Anne - thank you for the detailed preparation and excellent delivery.

A very enjoyable session, and I felt very encouraged to participate.

Thanks for making people feel comfortable about sharing and bringing together a disparate group both in terms of role and attitude.

Great training. Feel all excited about the future of the museums education programme!

Very positive delivery. Well paced. Morning a good mixture of talk and listen and feeding back. Good practical group work activity in the afternoon.

Great to have open discussions. Everything was most relevant and everybody left with lots of ideas to improve our learning provision.

Clarified aims, and strong and weak points in my style of delivery.

This has made me think about my role as a helper on workshops and about the interaction with children and teachers.
